"New York To California" as written by and Mathew Kearney....
Under the TV lights, you fell asleep again
Don't know, I'm writing this song about you
There's a picture of a Hollywood sign, reflecting off your skin I
Don't want to live another day without you
You woke up and said baby I, had one of those dreams again
The rain came down and I lost you, In the wind
You said something about don't leave, before you fell back asleep
Before I could sing my song back to you

But you could find your self lost out in this world
And I found a way to get back to your side
No mountains to high, no stone is too small
I'll build a bridge through the fire, for you I would crawl
From New York to California

I could hear you softly breathing, oh what you do to me
But baby I could climb down into your dreams
I Build a ladder down through the clouds
Where the storms Is raging now I
Don't want to sing another song without you

If you find your self lost out in this world
Then I'll find a way to get back to your side
No mountains to high, no stone is too small
I'll build a bridge through the fire, for you I would crawl
From New York to California

Singing, la la la la la la
Oh, It's not too far, la la la la la la
Oh, to where you are, la la la la la la
Oh, It's not too far,

Cause you, could find your self lost out in this world
And I, Could find a way to get back to your side

If you find your self lost out in this world
Then I'll find a way to get back to your side
No mountains to high, no stone is too small
I'll build a bridge through the fire, for you I would crawl
From New York to California, To California, To California

    General Commenti like this song a lot. i think it's self explanatory. i want to incorporate this song into my future wedding. i like how it's simple and innocent. he's just spending a quiet night with his girl and singing this song to her while she's asleep, and half singing this song to himself about her.

    General CommentIn a recent interview, Mat Kearney said this about New York to California:

    "New York to California is like the most literal song, and I wrote it, umm, while someone was falling asleep, to the TV. So I wrote this song. That's all I'm going to say about that one. It's pretty literal. Just listen. Just, turn it up."

    In the entire interview about this album, that was the song he seemed most emotional about, or seemed to kind of pause and hold his breath a bit.
